Denial & Appeals

Most applications for Social Security benefits are denied and require an appeal so that they can present their full cases to the court. This is the stage of the process when most clients hire their Social Security lawyers, as people who hire lawyers win their appeals more often than those who choose to represent themselves. Mrs. Lake has personally handled thousands of appeals over her 23 years practicing Social Security law in Arizona, and our office will be able to design the appropriate strategy for your case.

We win many cases for clients who were denied on their applications.

A major part of the appeal process is walking you through the collection of evidence and information that supports your disability claim. Our objective is to prove that you cannot work in any capacity, and to do so we must carefully document treatment of your condition. Please call our office and you will get help figuring out how to proceed so that you have a compelling case ready at your hearing.

I want to say that I’ve been stricken with Fibromyalgia for a number of years now, and THANKS to Stephanie Lake’s law firm I was awarded the SSDI I so desperately needed to live. She was a gung-ho go-getter and worked on my behalf in every way! She was great to have on my side and I’ll always be grateful to her and her firm for going to bat for me when I needed her help!!! Thank you all so much. I haven’t forgotten what you did for me and I never will!
